    Welcome to RTA!

    Are you aware of all the toll roads? I-80/90 from Chicago east is toll, and I-90 through all of NY is toll. With a trailer, the tolls are not cheap. I would recommend the...

    If you do that, I'd recommend using UT-20 to get from US-89 to I-15.

    If you take US-93, note that gas stations are pretty sparse between Las Vegas and I-84. There is NO gas between Las Vegas and Alamo, NO gas between Pioche and Ely, NO gas between Ely and I-80.

    My nephew rented the biggest U-Haul truck to do a cross country move. It had a Ford V-10. Gas mileage was horrible - about 5 mpg. You are better off renting a Penske with a diesel. U-Haul doesn't...

    Welcome to RTA!

    I-84 doesn't go anywhere near Victorville. You sure you don't mean I-15?

    I would not go to Victorville. I would take CA-62 out of Palm Springs to Yucca Valley, then CA-247 to...

    I would make a minor adjustment - stay on I-5 through Sacramento to Stockton, use the CA-4 freeway over to CA-99. This could save you 15 minutes.

    I wouldn't worry about US-49 unless you hit it at rush hour. Even then, it shouldn't be too bad. I'm typing this at 5:30 pm EDT (Monday) and Google Maps is not showing any significant delays...

    2. (Longer but less traffic and no...

    Also, a lot of surface roads are only single lane with limited passing ability. You will have angry motorists stacking up behind you if you are driving slow.
